Kavi Darbar ( ਕਵੀ ਦਰਬਾਰ )

The divinity of the “Sabda” ( ਸਬਦ ), often, on its way to being imbibed by the heart, rides, in luscious repetition and melodious grace, the rhythms of the language of poetry. The cadence of the poetic language showers the souls with visions of musical imagery of the divine, freeing them from the snare of space-time. Therefore, creative imagination, that is obedient of the divine, holds an important space between the revealed wisdom of the “Sabda” and human consciousness. Melodious flow of thoughts in the musical words of a poet offer divine elixir of life enriching the listeners’ spiritual outlook. Gurudwara Kavi Darbar of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji at Paonta Sahib is manifestation of some such unfathomable divine mystery.

         Naad Pargaas organizes big Kavi Darbars to keep the Sikh consciousness in the proximity of the divine aesthetics of the “Sabda”. Classical music is also made a part of this Kavi Darbar to ensure that this tradition stays alive in Punjab. Naad Pargaas, in its continued adoration for higher spiritual values in all arts, has taken upon itself the task of promulgating these among the classes and the masses. Naad Pargaas is extremely sensitive about the delicate and musical dimensions present in the Punjabi literature and to mark this delicacy its makes the classical musical traditions, a part of kavi darbar.

Naad Pargaas organized Kavi Darbar on December 28, 2012 at Punjab Kla bhavan chandigarh during four day conference on Indian Philosophy.
